Research

Dr. Benjamin Suratt, Professor of MedicineThe cornerstone of the Lung Center program is a high-profile, world-class research program. The program is multi-departmental (medicine, pediatrics, pathology, physiology, engineering, immunobiology) and multidisciplinary (physiology, pathology, cardiovascular, bio-engineering and cell biology). The faculty involved are a cohesive group; interactive and dedicated to improving the research climate within UVM and the Larner College of Medicine.
